As an attorney, I appreciated Natalie’s close attention to detail in every document and contract and that she takes the time to set out various recommended strategies for getting a deal done based on her experience on both sides of the table. Alex also took initiative to help me manage all deadlines and inspections. Catherine M.
You won’t find a harder working agent than Natalie. I handed her the keys of my home to sell knowing it was not an easy property and time to market but Natalie never seems to run out of ideas. Her professionalism, knowledge and eye for detail are easily noted. Her explanation of the process along the way made it easy. Her talent for staging makes you want to buy your own home!! I can only hope your agent is like Natalie I will never use anyone else. Marianne J.
We worked with Natalie in what I can only describe as a difficult Covid impacted market in pursuit of our home, and she came through for us wonderfully! She found us a beautiful new property in Erie with stellar views in which we look forward to raising our family. We cannot picture ourselves anywhere else, nor could we have negotiated the price to within our means without her.
My other half and I came to Natalie with a long list of requirements for our home which included specific zoning, a large acreage minimum, strict location requirements, water demands, and a hard set budget ceiling. She was extremely patient with us and happily arranged for us to visit at least twelve separate properties, each of which were ruled out for one reason or another. We are new to the Colorado area as such were unfamiliar with the concept of water rights and well requirements. Natalie calmly walked us through the different classifications and helped determine that a well property would not provide sufficient flow potential for our needs. Additionally, the kind of properties that met our laundry list of desires were mostly homes using a septic system. Natalie was able to explain the ins and outs of how the system works, tank requirements and recommended inspections to insure we didn’t run into a costly repair or replacement at the time of purchase.
During our search, Natalie helped us submit offers on two other homes, and when the negotiations seemed to be leading us towards overpaying, or increasingly difficult sellers, she made astute recommendations to continue our search elsewhere. It was indescribably comforting to have someone who knew the true value of the properties in the Boulder county area and who always on our side rather than pushing us into something we might regret.
I would be happy to recommend Natalie and Colorado Safari Properties to anyone seeking a new home. I have bought and sold property on two other occasions in my life and have never dealt with an agent who was as responsive and who made herself available at our convenience. Whether it was a spur of the moment request to view a specific property, or last minute adjustments to the verbiage in our offer, Natalie was always there for us.
Thank you so much Natalie, you’ve put us in such a wonderful position to start the next phase of our lives!
Natalie is an outstanding advocate and really takes the time to understand the client’s needs and priorities. She regularly went “above and beyond” for me, helping with not only my CO house sale but also offering invaluable advice on my house purchase in another state. She has a great attention to detail and an artist’s perspective to staging. Natalie is very clear in her communication and is a very trustworthy and dependable person. I highly recommend her for any of your real estate/brokerage needs. Elissa D.
When I was in the market for a new house I went through Colorado Safari Properties and worked with Raechel Taylor. Raechel is professional, knowledgeable and fun to work with. She went above and beyond when she got me in to see a listed house before the previous occupant planned to start showings because I was anxious to put in a bid. Thanks Raechel for helping me get my new home. I love it! Tammy N.
Natalie and Sage were extremely accommodating and helpful while I was purchasing my home. They sent properties that matched what I was looking for in a home and were able to meet at the property right away! Their knowledge of contracts was immense and they walked me through every step of the process. I could not have asked for a better team to help through my first time buying a house! I highly recommend them! Stephanie N.
I was making a huge life change, knew only the basic direction I wanted to go, had endless questions, and was working on a relatively small budget. Natalie and Sage were patient, knowledgeable, and generous with their expertise. They helped me understand my options, they connected me with other great local experts when I needed the help, and they definitely knew the right questions to ask potential sellers to set me up for success in the biggest investment of my life. It took months (did I mention they were exceptionally patient!), but I ended up with *exactly* the right horse property with the right acreage in the right location at the right price. Through the whole experience, Natalie and Sage kept me informed, gave detailed answers to all of my questions, helped me manage deadlines, and made me feel like a priority. I am eternally grateful for their support, attention, experience, advocacy, professionalism, and kindness. I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone looking for a trusted partner in the property-buying process. Lynn Y.
This review is long overdue but I’m glad to say that Natalie and team were superb and by far the best I’ve worked with in all my years of home ownership going on my 8th real estate transaction. They did an excellent job for me on the sale of my existing Thornton home and purchase of my new home in Denver. Natalie brings a new definition to the word “professional”! Highly recommended. No Bull. Abel C.
You are top-notch, sharp, direct, honest and man you work HARD. It’s appreciated and I will always send business your way. Jennifer C.
I don’t know if there are enough superlatives with which to describe the team with whom I worked. I decided to move to a town north of Denver, an area with which I was not at all familiar but chose it for the proximity to the barn in which I board my horse. After laying out my parameters and price range, my team (Natalie, Amy, and Sage) immediately got to work. I received many listings each day. Not knowing the neighborhoods, it was difficult to decide. Natalie suggested, we take a few hours for her to show me the different parts of town, the major cross streets and different developments. Within in 3 weeks, we found my house! The process of purchasing it was full of contracts, deadlines and decisions; each one outlining the steps along the path to closing. The team kept me aware of the dates, choices and processes in a calendar they made for me. I would have been lost in a swirl of (electronic) paper and questions if they had not been so proactive in keeping me in the loop every step. The closing was smooth as silk.
Then it was time to list my Denver house. Fall was turning into winter and Natalie recommended we have her professional photographer shoot while we still had the fall foliage. She and Sage pulled it together quickly, and snow arrived two day later! The house looked beautiful, we discussed and arrived at a price and it was under contract 6 days after the listing appeared. What followed, again were all the (electronic) contracts, amendments and negotiations. At each step, both Sage and Natalie kept me appraised of the communication stream between them and the buyer’s broker as well as the mortgage lender’s needs and requirements. Once again, they made a calendar so I wouldn’t miss a date. This team, including Amy doing paperwork behind the scenes, made me feel as though I was their only client (which I know wasn’t the case). They were always available, returned calls or texts within minutes and held my hand when I didn’t understand something. To say they are amazing is understatement. If anyone is looking for a team of consummate professionals, who also have a delightful sense of humor, look no further than Colorado Safari Properties. Elizabeth L.
Raechel was incredibly thoughtful and thorough through the entire process. At no point was she unsure of what to do, she executed our sale with the utmost respect for our wants and concerns. She was very good at making the potentially daunting task of selling our 1st home, a pleasant experience. I would and will most definitely be recommending her services to all. Amber S.
Natalie is knowledgeable about acreage properties – exactly what we were looking for in our next house. She was focused on what we wanted, including how to present a contract that includes the details important to us. She not only helped us successfully buy our next house, she sold our old house. Huge thanks to Natalie and her team (Rachael) for guiding us through the process! Heather L.
Natalie was great and more detailed and helpful than any other agent I have had! Robert B.
It was a pleasure to work with Natalie Quaratino on the sale of my property. Her knowledge and professionalism as she guided me through what could have been most stressful, was invaluable. Thank you, Natalie, for everything you did on my behalf to make this sale a successful experience. Karen I.
Raechel is an angel! I’d avoided the home buying process for YEARS because it just seemed too confusing and stressful. Then along came Raechel who explained and held my hand through every step. She took my list of wants and needs in a home and found me everything I was looking for. I would have never been brave enough to take this home buying step without Raechel by my side. Carolina H.
You are held in extremely high regard by my family ever since you worked your real estate magic over the summer. Thank you so much. You are a fantastic real estate agent. My family is grateful for all your hard work. Kelly T.
Raechel Taylor made selling our home such a smooth and exciting process. She was motivated and eager to advertise the property with amazing photos and a video. She also kept us updated at all times….we never felt uninformed! She was with us from the beginning until the closing 30 days later. Very quick…far exceeding our expectations of the sale. Matt S.
Natalie’s knowledge, skills, and resources amazed me. I had a difficult sale and was glad that I chose Natalie. She was with me every step of the way making sure things moved along and keeping me sane! This gal has spunk with the credentials to back it up!! Stephanie S.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for making our dreams come true of owning a home. Thanks again for all the hard work. You guys are truly great and wonderful people. Tracy C.
THANK YOU NATALIE FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK. You got done in a few months what no one else could in 3 years. Kathy K.
The 7 most beautiful words I have ever heard “Clear to Close – Loan Commitment in Place”. No words can ever thank my real estate agent Natalie Quaratino enough for everything she has managed to do – this would have never happened if it weren’t for her!! Joyce M.
We were first time home buyers, clueless and with lots of questions. Raechel was super kind and patient with us. She knows her stuff, gets down to business, and was always on top of everything. She worked in our direction and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home. You will love her personality. Tanairy P.
I can’t begin to thank you enough for being so incredible to work with and always watching out for Michael and me. You are excellent at your job and I can’t think of anyone else I would want to have find me a home! Also, A huge relief this morning as our house inspection resolutions were accepted last night! I can not thank Natalie Quaratino, real estate genius, for all of her hard work! Now comes the fun part……….PACKING FOR DAYS!!!! Angie Z.
My Fiance and I are first time home buyers and our experience with Raechel Taylor was great! She took time out of her schedule to get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a home. We had questions for her and she would never struggle answering them. She was honest. If she did not know an answer to a specific question, she made sure to have a professional and honest answer in a timely manner. She had a wedding planned and she kept cool and calm. Never did she show any frustration or stress. She made sure we were not confused or felt off about something. Raechel made our offer stand out and we got our first home. We were so glad we had Raechel every step of the way. I would encourage anyone to work with Raechel. She even went out of her way to gift us at closing with an adorable frame, which we will keep forever. And I am excited for my friends and family to receive post cards Raechel personally ordered for them to see our new home. Thank you Raechel for everything!!! Janely P.
She is very professional and personal. Explained everything to us. I really felt she was working for me. Brenda V.
I cannot rave enough about Natalie Quaratino and her team related to the sale of my home and the purchase of a new home. The house sale and purchase was a result of a divorce and I can’t imagine any other realtor partnering with me with such compassion and true caring. The start of this process began with another real estate firm and after over 90 days on the market with no offers and very minimal showings I contacted Natalie for her advice. Once we decided to move forward, Natalie went into action and keeping my budget in mind totally revamped the way the home was presented. She knows her stuff with design and strategic marketing and the transformation was amazing. Once on the market, our open houses brought in double the amount of traffic and the showings greatly increased. Within 2 weeks we had multiple offers and a successful close. Natalie’s attention to detail is absolutely stellar. She took the time to review all the contracts and made sure everything was pointed out. This was extremely helpful as my state of mind during this time was not very detailed oriented. She is an excellent negotiator, fair and to the point and did an unbelievable job throughout the negotiations. After we had a final contract she again went into action to find my perfect replacement home. I have been through several realtor firms with selling and purchasing a home and I have never experienced the thoroughness and determination as I saw in Natalie. She knew exactly what I wanted and needed, and stopped at nothing until she found it. She even interviewed various locations in person to find the right location. This resulted in the best possible outcome for me, in a fabulous location and a brand new home. New construction is very daunting although I felt safe and protected under Natalie’s guidance. She again went through every paper and document with me, and there was a lot, and made sure all avenues were covered and I was protected. I highly recommend Natalie and her company for any real estate transaction. I know for a fact that no other real estate firm I have worked with have been this detailed oriented, compassionate and knowledgeable. I will most definitely be a return customer for any future real estate transactions, and already refer Safari to anyone needing a realtor! Jane W.
During the difficult times of selling a house, Natalie made the experience upbeat and fun. She helped me stage the house to give it that extra touch and guided me through the whole process. Natalie and her team were very professional from beginning to end. Kim H.
Raechel and her team are amazing she definitely knows how to make your offer stand out helped us with every bit even if we didn’t understand. Even when we had gone under contract while she was away getting married she was still in touch. Both my wife and I are super pleased with Raechel. Sergio G.
Alex and Natalie are a joy to work with. They really know their stuff, calmly and efficiently guiding you through the stressful process of buying a house, making sure you get the place that’s just right for you. Their experience and knowledge shows through the entire process: searching out houses that fit YOUR criteria, submitting and following through on the offer, and getting through the confusing contract/mortgage/closing procedure. I’ve worked with other realtors in the past, but Alex and Natalie are truly the best. Steve A.
Raechel we want to thank you for all your hard work and dedication to us. Reuben and I would like to thank you for all that you have done for us… you fought so hard from the first time we met until closing. You have been a true blessing to us and our family for helping us close on our beautiful home and we couldn’t have done without you. You truly are amazing and the passion you showed us every step of the way was remarkable even when we drove you crazy you didn’t give up it truly was amazing ..we drove you thru the mud and back looking at many homes and you did it with pleasure and you fought for us to get everything needed to be done and worked many hours along with Natalie to get us to the closing table. You presented us with a beautifully laid out binder of everything we went thru step by step, picture by picture which took days to put together that truly was an amazing gift and as well a beautiful card you are awesome thanks again. Davida V.
I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with both Natalie and Alex with Colorado Safari Properties in finding my amazing home. I had a very specific wish list for my future home (horse property, over 1 acre, centrally located but feels peaceful, etc.) and they made every effort to seek those out and find the perfect fit. Both Natalie and Alex worked extremely well and seamlessly as a team, and were available day or night, weekday or weekend. If a house came on the market which met my criteria at 6:30 am then I was sure to be notified a few minutes later and a viewing confirmed shortly after that. In fact this proactive diligence is what got me my house! Additionally they have exceptional attention to detail in writing/reviewing contracts, titles, and all other legal documents so I felt protected and knew that they were always watching out for my best interest. They tirelessly answered my questions, showed me many homes, wrote offers, really were just there for anything I needed and with a smile. They were generous with sharing their experiences and wisdom in owning horse property as I’ve never dealt with rural acreage, and really helped me hone in on finding my perfect home. I couldn’t thank them enough and would definitely use Safari Properties again and recommend them to others. Emese D., Ph.D.
I cannot thank Natalie and Alex enough for their insight, knowledge, and hard work. As a first-time home-buyer I am especially appreciative of their patience and experience – they made the process of finding and buying the home I wanted seem almost easy. Also, I am very impressed with Alex’s negotiation skills. I highly recommend Team Safari! Elizabeth E., M.D.
LOVE Natalie and Alex. Both ladies were honest and worked night and day for our family. I will always refer them. Brandi P.
Our new house is absolutely beautiful and I am still pinching myself that I deserve a house so nice. We have boxes everywhere but the dogs are LOVING their new backyard and I keep wondering what to do with all this space. A tremendous amount of thanks to Natalie Quaratino and Alex Coffman for taking such good care of us and making our dream come true! Mike L.
We recently worked with Team Safari to locate and purchase our small farm property. Natalie and Alex were truly wonderful to work with during this time. They have extensive experience with acreage properties and gave us excellent advice when it came to the details of property considerations. It is obvious that both of them love what they do and are willing to put in the extra effort that is necessary to help their clients get exactly what they are looking for. Purchasing an acreage property is not like buying a home in the suburbs. It often takes time, diligence, and patience. Natalie and Alex understand this and their professionalism and knowledge made the process truly enjoyable. We would not hesitate to recommend them to our friends or anyone who is serious about investing in an acreage property or looking to sell their existing home. Bill & Michelle L.
Natalie and Alex are always responsive and prompt. Very knowledgeable. Al M.
Natalie and Alex allowed us our own process for buying, combined with excellent support we could trust. Bill and Jheri N.
